Cutting board accessories do a disappearing act

The Chef'n PrepStation Cutting Board includes a collapsible colander and transfer tray that both store directly in the base of the board.

Prep work won't disappear, but clutter and mess will.

The power of the kitchen lies in its ability to transform a heap of raw ingredients into a cohesive meal. As we chop, slice, and dice our way through the prep work, it is almost like magic how proteins, veggies, and starches turn into recognizable meals thanks to a little knife work. But there is more than just cutlery involved.

Being able to produce a kitchen gadget or utensil out of thin air (or from with a kitchen cabinet or drawer as the case may be) is one thing, but being able to find it room on a crowded countertop is another matter entirely. The Chef'n PrepStation Cutting Board allows for both. Featuring a unique design that hides two handy helpers within, the cutting board is an everyday kitchen essential that doesn't rely on smoke and mirrors.

A collapsible colander and a transfer tray give this often-overlooked kitchen item the means to stay visible. From start to finish, the useful accessories help with the prep work; the colander allows for ingredients to be easily washed and then even acts as a convenient scrap catcher while cutting. It might not be magic how the cutting board and accessories let one move ingredients around, but the disappearing act that the tools do after is something certainly to be applauded.
